ESMB Down due to extremely high traffic
« on: July 09, 2012, 19:58 »
On the off chance that someone comes looking for what might have happened to ESMB, I'll post this here.

On Reddit's "Today I Learned", someone posted the following:
TIL That the single largest infiltration of the United States government in history was up to 5,000 covert agents, and was carried out by the "Church" of Scientology.

This is linked to a thread on ESMB, and the incoming traffic has brought the server down; this is known as the "slashdot effect".

The good part is:
There are 559 comments on the article on Reddit, so that means lots of talk about Scientology.  And lurkers.  Lots of people learning and sharing.  ;D

 :D Thanks. I was wondering what might have happened.
